WCHS expanding to provide opportunities

WASHINGTON, Il - Multi million dollar improvements may be on the way for one central Illinois high school.

The Washington school board approved the use of more than 3.5 million dollars in bonds and other money set aside to improve its high school. Superintendent Kyle Freeman says the funds will pay for additions to the music department, football stadium and make way for more classrooms.

He says voter approval wont be needed. “Your schools are your pillar for your community, there one of the main drawing cards for anybody that wants to move to the area,” said Freeman. He adds, “We need to do our part to ensure that we are providing the best facilities available, to evolve with our students needs.”

The district is hopeful to break ground at the end of this school year.
